Forum: GratefulDead Subject: favorite Donor rap?

what's your favorite?

ok sorry couldn't resist.

tried listening to Furthur today and gave up. Just do not see the point at all BUT

I would definitely see them in person. Why the hell not? And even if you wouldn't even see them in person you have to give them credit for adventurous setlists and mixing tunes up in both sets. Still bugs me they went with a guy who was in a tribute band.

not trying to be negative to those that dig them because like I said I'd definitely go see them

Your post reminds of something funny some said after looking at the Obama reunion setlist from a few years ago. "I much prefer the Eyes>china Doll>Biden rap from 73"

Was that really the Neil Kinnock rap from '73?

hey J., i think you'd agree that in the years i've been on this forum you have never seen any post by me about any post-GD lineups, either positive or negative (at least i cannot recall any), because for me it was always pretty much Jerry and nothing else; Jerry was the center for me and still is, nothing against the other members, they contributed in so many great ways as well ... the other nite i was just browsing the archive and i happened to come across a Further show, and why not, folks were singing their praises, probably more so than any other post-GD lineup that i can recall; i sampled only two songs, a Morning Dew > Let It Grow, and i cannot lie to you, i managed to forget Jerry for a bit and actually dare i say it enjoyed the music; it will never replace Jerry, but it was cool and i definitely got 'into' the music, not enough to want to download, but enought that i could give a nod and say 'well done, thanks for bringing the love to another generation'; it's interesting reading the comments on the Further shows, you have folks who were on the bus back in the '60s, '70s, '80s, etc., and folks who were too young to see the GD w/Jerry; the enthusiasm and joy that the music of Further is bringing to them, no matter what i personally think, is actually pretty cool, and it makes me glad, glad that Phil & Bob still have that connection, maybe not to you and me, but to many people who are finding these shows thrilling and absorbing in possibly a way that you and i did back in the day seeing Jerry; it's all good i say, let it shine...

That is exactly it, you summed it up. I'm not too likely to listen to Furthur outside the live setting - occasionally, but there is just too much else to listen to, namely the Grateful Dead. The live experience is different and worth it. It's Bob and Phil!

hey Arb. thanks for the link ill be sure to check it out. I hope you didnt get me wrong. Im not downing them at all for getting out there even if it does kind of weird me out theyre using an impersonator. id much rather it was kimock. and i would absolutely love to see them live. and they could easily churn out some predictable stuff but they are doing way more adventurous things than the gd had for a long long time pretty much ever but obviousley Jerry is the key. the few post jerry recordings that I do voluntarily play are the Phil lineups with phish, dnb,jorma. do you ever check those out? and amazing sbds too. of course they have the kimock magic which i really like

not at all, i knew where you were coming from, i'm pretty much of the same mind; i haven't checked out any of those P&F shows that you mention, altho i have enjoyed the Kimock shows that direwolf sent me a long time ago; however, the question in my head right now is what will Cliff's report to the forum be upon his return from Further???

hey Arb you should check out those april 99 phil shows with trey and page. VERy exciting stuff. Also during that timeframe he played with Jorma, Little Feat, and Dave Nelson band. All very good lineups. Much more exciting than anything the band had done is a LONG time

I've gone several times and it's nice . I have low expectations and a wide margin of forgiveness . I suppose it's a way to pay my respects . Who knows if I'll see Phil or Bobby again . They both have had a big impact in my life . And sometimes when they are rolling and you close your eyes .... For me , it is strictly a live experience and most importantly , date night w/Ms. M .
BK in the pocket w/Steve Kimock and Page McConnell would make me really interested . But wishes and but(t)s are like clusters and nuts .

Trick question -best donor raps are clearly from Phil shows. Like this one:

When do you get a cameo in Mama Grizzly's reality show?

I agree, live is good, but no need for me to listen to the recordings. Well, there is one reason, I really enjoy John's take on Ryan Adams' Magnolia Mountain.

I got to see John play solo acoustic in front of about 150 or so people last month. He is truly an amazing player. He played Gan's "Down to Eugene" and Rush's "Time Stands Still" along with some original songs of his own from his days in Hairball Willie. I think I now have a better appreciation for "Victim or the Crime" after hearing his rendition.
